A hand operated lever hoist, also known as a ratchet lever hoist or come-along, is a manual lifting and pulling device that is commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and other industries. It consists of a lever and a chain or cable that are used to lift heavy objects by pulling on the lever.
The lever hoist works by using a ratcheting mechanism that allows the user to pull the lever in one direction while preventing it from moving in the opposite direction. This allows the user to slowly and safely lift heavy objects without the risk of the load slipping or dropping.
Lever hoists are available in a range of sizes and capacities to suit different lifting requirements, and they are often used in conjunction with overhead cranes or other lifting equipment. They are typically made from high-strength materials such as steel or aluminum to ensure durability and reliability, and they are designed to be lightweight and easy to handle for maximum user comfort and safety.
